Just got back from seeing "Inherent Vice",,,,,,the Washington Post Critic gave it raves and 4 stars. Several people walked out during the show. I still don't what it was really about, I should have read the book. The critic said Hollywood wasn't really sure how to present the story, to which I say "duh". I enjoyed the performances, lots of well known actors, lots of talent but I don't know what the story was. However, I really enjoy Joaquin Phoenix, so his performance was worth the price of the tickets.
